Mick and his dad always had a close relationship and always loved football. His dad always said he left the NFL because of an ankle injury, and Mick always believed him. One night Mick took the computer and looked up his dad. The website said he got kicked off the team because he was arrested twice and had bad behavior on the team.
This propels the plot because Mick and his dad now have a weaker relationship and Mick now has to try to fix this.
Propels The Plot By...
Mick's family tries to have a family dinner, but his dad doesn't show up. Mick and his mom now realize that they need to fix this problem and try to fix the relationship with Mick and his dad.
Mick and all of his friends make the Varsity football team for his school.
This propels the plot because Mick and his friends will need to practice more since they all made varsity. Varsity is way more competitive then JV and Mick and his friends will now have to train harder to get playing time on the team.
This means they could get more fame in school for making Varsity and their grades could drastically drop because of this.
